Christin Brown-Worthington honored with “Book of Golden Deeds” Award by the Exchange Club of Springfield, Ohio 

Clark County CASA Volunteer Christin Brown-Worthington has been named the 2024 recipient of the “Book of Golden Deeds” Award by the Exchange Club of Springfield, Ohio for her commitment to volunteer work. 

A long-time and prestigious award in the community, the “Book of Golden Deeds” honor recognizes a dedicated volunteer who devotes their time and talents toward making the community a better place to live. 

“It was a pleasure being nominated for this award and I accept this award on behalf of all CASA volunteers. We all really work hard to make a difference,“ said Brown-Worthington. 

Nominated by Clark County CASA Director Abby Easton, Brown-Worthington was presented with the award at the Shouvlin Center on Wittenberg University’s campus in late April. 

“Christin is so deserving of this honor,” said Easton. “She is such an amazing advocate for the children who need it most in our area. Our program is thrilled that her commitment to CASA and volunteer work has been recognized by the community.” 

After completing comprehensive training, Brown-Worthington was sworn in as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer in October 2022 to advocate for Clark County children experiencing abuse and neglect. 

Since, she has served five families and nine children. 

“As a CASA volunteer with our program, she approaches every case with kindness, respect and a willingness to help. Her dedication to this work is inspiring and impactful,” said Easton. “We are so glad to have her on our CASA team.” 

Brown-Worthington works to make sure children in need have their voices heard in court.

“I was motivated to be a CASA volunteer due to wanting to make a difference for our children. Our children deserve to have there voices heard,” said Brown-Worthington. 

The Clark County CASA program was launched in 1989. 

In addition to her service to CASA, Brown-Worthington also serves as a volunteer and board member with many other groups.  

She serves as a mentor to detained youth in the Clark County Juvenile Detention Center, as Vice Chairperson for the Holiday Food Basket Committee for the National Council of Negro Women, as a City of Springfield Planning Board Member and in many other roles.  

The entire Ohio CASA Network congratulates Brown-Worthington on this worthy recognition.
